Music Beta by Google
This Harmless Thought brought to you by Matt Harmless
Yesterday I received my invitation to Music Beta by Google. So far I am really loving it. They offered some free music to get things rolling. There were several categories of music to choose from, or you could select "add all". Since I love free stuff, I added it all. Little did I know there would be 271 free songs! (Yes, there is a 27 in there...)
This morning I downloaded the Music Manager on my home computer. Once it was installed, it started uploading all of my music in the background. It will continue to upload everything until it is complete. If it gets interrupted, it will pick up where it left off. Hopefully my wife keeps the computer plugged in and turned on today!
After a day of using it (and using it while I type) it seems to work really well. As with all things Google, it is simple and easy to use. I can upload up to 22,000 songs without having to worry about adding additional storage. There is an Android app available, but I will have to wait on that until I get an Android phone.
